Pizza Night

It's interesting what you can make with what's on hand. I didn't feel like venturing out to the store today, so just opened the fridge to see what might work. I found fresh mozzarella that need using up, some Red Hook sausage, a half can of olives, sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil. In a basket, one large white onion.

Here are the results:

For this one, I added sun-dried tomatoes soaked in olive oil, two minutes before pulling out of the oven.

Pizza with Red Hook sausage. This has a great flavor - first pan-fried, then sliced for the pizza. Add lightly sauteed onions, broken olives, oregano on a thin bed of organic pizza sauce. The crust? Home-made, of course.

This one has pine nuts, sauteed onions, slivers of lightly sauteed garlic, broken olives, oregano, feta cheese.

Red Hook pizza, detail:

Carbs: about 25-20 per 1/8 pizza. This is a good thing for those in our household with Type 1 diabetes. One could even split one dough three ways, and strive for an even thinner crust by rolling out with a pin.
